Ecstasy in Decay
Descent to filth inspired
In Death we are now mired
It's bounty Corruption claims
Behold the hosts of Disease
And Despair as your hope flees
Decay in the depraved flames
Endless Endings is a mark
This foul collection of inhumans was once a team of men, the Lugren Roughriders. The small islands in the North of the Empire, in the gulf of the Sea of Claws breed hardy folk and they were ever resistant to the Plague Lord's bilious concoctions.
The Roughriders were on fire and made the it to the final in The Chaos Cup of MMDXXI. The captain, Jacoby Rack, was approached by a thin hooded stranger who offered him a "miracle elixir" that would enhance his performance. He refused at first but with some cajoling and guilt tripping the stranger managed to get him to accept. He drank the stinking elixir and his team won the game. As he scored his fourth touchdown at the end of the 2nd half he ran into the crowd to celebrate with the fans.
It wasn't until weeks later, just before returning to training, that the gestating infections begin to manifest. Maggots and flies spilled from festering wounds. Limbs fused and eyeballs burst.
Some of the players, staff and fans perished in the first wave of sickness. Those who survived were drawn back to the Roughriders stadium, now a stench ridden blemish. The reason for the corruption was none other than Jacoby Rack himself. In Rack the mutations had taken over his mind, body and soul. A maw of razor sharp teeth oozing sticky venom and a mass of filthy tentacles, he was lost to Nurgle forever.
The Hooded One reappeared and declared that the Roughriders were no more. He declared he would take this team back to the Chaos Wastes to lead this young and hungry team to victory.
